Stop Work Procedure


If you received a Stop Work from a City of Oakland Building Inspector, you must stop all construction activities and visit the permit center to obtain the appropriate permits. You may also need to speak with the Inspector that has issued the Stop Work during office hours to obtain instructions on how to proceed.

Note that issuance of a Stop Work will trigger financial penalties.
